“All of our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
UK Vogue May 2015
What are some of your dreams?
I used to dream of being a singer or actress when I was a child. I was a member of various choirs throughout elementary and middle school and even performed once with my middle school choir in New Orleans! The last time I performed was in a variety show in college. Otherwise, I came to realize that while I enjoyed music and could sing and play the piano, I was no musical genius. I also didn’t have enough passion for it to drop out of school and pursue a budding music career.
My dreams now are a little simpler. I would love to transition to a different function in my career. I’ve been thinking about it for some time and dabbling in a different area. I may actually take the plunge soon with a startup. It is a little scary because I don’t have as much experience and would be building something new from scratch. I’m used to having resources at my fingertips (time, team members, best practices) but I’d have to do and learn a lot quickly. But I’m trying to take Walt’s words to heart and have a little courage. Sometimes dreams are far flung and harder to achieve (no, I will not be the next Taylor Swift), but sometimes with a little hard work and determination, they are within reach.
With that, I’m still not sure about the next steps, but I will at least have the courage to pursue them.
Have a lovely week!
